SBPA Corporate-Free Political Action Committee
The SBPA Elections Action team focuses on local Elections here in the South Bay area and works to identify, develop, support, and elect local candidates who refuse to accept corporate donations. To achieve our goals, we determined we wanted to form a Political Action Committee.
A political action committee (PAC) is organized for the purpose of raising and spending money to elect candidates. In late 2021, we formed the South Bay Progressive Alliance Corporate Free PAC as a “Nonconnected PAC” to support the election of Corporate-Free candidates here in Santa Clara County.
Why should I contribute to the SBPA Corporate Free PAC?
Corporations, lobbyists, and special interest groups have long held an outsized influence on our elections at the local, regional, and state level with their deep pockets and the “buying” of elections - despite the popular will - by out shouting lesser-known candidates whose positions on issues truly benefit people.
SBPA PAC seeks to level the playing field as an increasingly important resource and tool that helps elect more Progressives in our region. We will do this by helping elect truly corporate-free candidates to public office and the reality is that while precinct walking and people powered campaigns are one of our best tools, it takes money to print literature, lawn signs, host phone banks, and pay for direct mail campaigns.
As an organization, SBPA is not permitted to make contributions to candidates. But when you contribute to our SBPA Corporate Free PAC, your donations are amplified by the voices of other like-minded progressives. We WANT to show up on Donor lists as significant players in local and regional races.
Our goal is to raise and donate $10,000 in the months leading up to the March 5, 2024 Primary Election -- and another $10,000 before the November 5, 2024 General Election. BUT! We can’t do that without YOUR HELP!
